About Captain Sam Leary

Welcome to Fishingwithsam charter, a family-owned fishing business offering quality fishing experiences for everyone. Run by Captain Sam, a knowledgeable angler with over 30 years of experience fishing in both Saltwater and Freshwater. Captain Sam is a former teacher who loves the outdoors and has two young boys who have already started learning the ropes of fishing from their dad.


For the last 15 years, Captain Sam has dedicated himself to becoming an expert in freshwater species found in rivers throughout New England. He can point out the best fishing spots and guide anglers on trips up north to some of the most renowned locations, such as Lake Champlain in Vermont and the tidal waters of Connecticut. His knowledge and experience are invaluable to those who are seeking a successful day out on the water, and he will teach you about the jigging and light tackle techniques that are successful in these areas. 

Most Suitable Guests:

He offers trips that accommodate anglers of all levels and caters to families with children. Whether you're a seasoned angler or a beginner, Captain Sam has the perfect experience for you. He has years of expertise and understands the needs of each individual on board his boat. Since he's a former teacher, what sets him apart is his ability to teach children how to fish in a gentle, patient manner.

Fish Species You Can Expect:

Captain Sam has extensive knowledge of fishing these waters and specializes in targeting Brown Trout, Large and Smallmouth Bass, and Northern Pike. With his years of experience as a professional guide and angler, Sam knows not just where to go for fish but also how to use each river's characteristics to locate and catch them.

The Boat:

Captain Sam is a proud owner of a new Vexus bass boat, 20 feet in length and powered by a 150-horsepower Mercury engine. With a top cruising speed of 55 mph, it is equipped with advanced features such as the Garmin Livescope forward-facing sonar system and an Ultrex 80lb thrust 24-volt trolling motor. It is safe to say that Captain Sam has found a reliable boat that can meet all his fishing needs while offering him peace of mind.
